companies that are part of a share economy, get more people involved in the economy in general, and creating ideas about how people can participate. we came across a very great idea that as we go through more exercises in our disaster preparedness, ann and her staff have been great at that. in fact, the last one i kind of had fun in, how do we feed 10,000 people in the middle of the tenderloin in a major erredthtion quake disaster. we walked through that. we saw how meals are served. we tried to do it in the proper way. ~ earthquake we know we're going to need a lot of help. the main message that we wanted to have was after a disaster hits, we want the message to be out before disaster, during a disaster, and right after, that we welcome everybody to participate in our recovery. and the best way to recover quickly and faster is we engage everybody immediately about how we can help and assist each other. and that's partly a philosophy of the sharing economy as well. and whether it's a need for space, people need to have space as they did in the aftermath of hurricane sandy, or now in oklahoma
policies to control costs, grow our economy, create jobs and stabilize our fiscal health, this year i'm proposing a budget that protects our social safety net, one that increases public safety, and one that invests in our city's infrastructure at unprecedented levels. and it is a budget that significantly grows our city's reserves. this budget is being delivered as san francisco's economy is recovering, going, and moving in the right direction. and san franciscans are getting back to work. in fact, our unemployment rate has dropped, as you all know, from 9.5% in january of 2011 to an astounding 5.4% just last month. (applause) >> i know, i know it has -- it has not been easy. we've had to work hard with our health services system, our care -- our health care providers, and labor to reduce employee health care costs. and because of our collaboration, we will now save $52 million over the next two years. and we've made tough but necessary choices on everything from escalating pension costs to reforming our unfair job punishing business tax. we've injected a healthy dose of fiscal discip
well, munis is such and important part of the city's economy that all city of san francisco benefits. all of the people who ride these buses are really benefitting everybody because they are not out on their own vehicles in the road causing pollution and congestion. they are getting around san francisco in the cleanest way possible and really contributing to what makes the economy strong. we are super excited about these vehicles for us and for our operators and mechanics and they are really a great benefit for all san francisco. i want to acknowledge some people. i have been a member of my board of directors, my bosses, chairman to director jerry lee, ramos, i don't know if anybody else is here. mohammed the director of public works and we are going to hear a little bit about how these buses are part of the public space. just like these are clean, we want to keep these clean. the buses here from input, from our operators, transit workers union local 258. the san francisco transit riders union. the mta advisory committee. a lot of folks working together, our fleet engineers, mechanic
and any type of economic activity spreads through the entire economy. it is a great example of everybody working together. city economic development is the engine of our nation and we need to provide an environment with start ups that can flourish and if we do that, all the the grid lock in washington, our economy will grow. i would reach to everybody to remember that everybody has problems, every government has problems. when you look at america, we've had 235 years of dysfunction and it's doing well so far. maybe it comes with the territory. san francisco has shown how government can function and the citizens of san francisco and the whole region are benefit ting from it. we've had something like a 30 percent in tech growth. this is what we call the big app instead of the big apple. in the next decade the capital will continue to grow. last year it was like a hundred new york city based companies that acquired $1.8 billion. it's just the beginning. if you think about san francisco and new york, the future couldn't be brighter because tech business is where the business is where people
a whole bevy of coming in this economy that affects the management and the host company that is start ing in san francisco that want to plan with us and not wait for a disaster to hit and then find out that we could have accessed many people. that is helpful for the mayor to search for more partners and get ready and be more excited about recovery. when you look at what happened in new orleans and all the victims of tornados. they always tell you they could have been more ready for this had they engaged people ahead of time. this is what we are doing to improve these changes. if the economy gets hit by a major earthquake, that's an incredible hit to the rest of the country. we have to invest a lot more. that is one example of how we can use a lot more technology companies helps us with things that have challenged our cities. >> the likelihood of an earthquake is less than out here, although i have lived in city hall, working there one day when the building actually shook. it was the first that i noticed. everything did shake a little bit. it wasn't particularly frightening. right now we a

economy every day. my organization and employees are excited by the 5.4 unplug and write and excited about the new businesses coming in ,in the ideas of expanding open space, around civic center and -- plaza. what i'm deeply concerned about today and what i want to speak to you about is why we're moving forward with the new economy, and moving forward with tech and business coming back, and concern about the most vulnerable san franciscans. one bedroom apartment is averaging 3,000 a month. median income has reached 77,000 here in san francisco. i'm concerned about the draconian cuts put forward by the department of health that will hurt many of my employees who rely on the systems of care of their own welfare for them and their families. i am concerned about the workforce system that is not addressing individuals with huge implement gaps. there is innovation being put forwardboth to the mayor's office from the various groups to reform the work for system; there are new ideas on how to get homeless individuals back to work. these are expensive options. i hope that in the age of inno
the miners who were farmers and to create a new economy for san francisco and haven't we brilliantly and completely made new economies and so many knew that we have to name the latest new economy of the economy of invention and creativity and isn't that what we were doing in the gold rush and so it was stunning to be here with all of you who have made this possible. in 1900, the community worked with us to move up here in this area of a water front, and more of a lagoon area where we could congregate better and save the area where fisherman's wharf had been for the commerce that was needed to sustain our city. as the most of the logistics changed and as the needs changed as a community it was fisherman's wharf that helped us to envision what could be the future. in almost 50 years ago, the discussions began, how to enlifen our water front and how to keep it a working water front as we have here with all of us, as visitors, as those folks who are enjoying the great suit that they have to offer and the wonderful open space and also the working ferries that are helping to transport us a

that stands out for me is education, economic and work force of the element, stimulating the local economy. we have the third street merchant corridor and an opportunity to revitalize what i consider to be the main artery of the bayview district, of the southeast quarter. third street is a pretty long streak. from at&t park, it goes all the way to candlestick park. there is a lot of opportunity. don't squander that. we wanted to be a healthy mix that reflects the cultural history of the southeast part of the city. >> what are your thoughts on how the city can deal with the budget issue? >> we are in a very difficult time financially as a country, as a state, as a county. we have a multimillion-dollar deficit. what i see is we have competing priorities. >> ok. >> there's a whole host of non- profit and service organizations that provide a service and a social safety net for people. if people are not able -- they're not making money to get on calworks, or they get on aid, we cut that aid, that has an adverse affect on a population that needs it. i would like to see the city continued to move in
now to get people to work. and while the economy is a little stronger now than when we started work a year or so again it was not so much and we were getting people off the benches and in their booths working on the ground. and an important benefit of this project for the economy of san francisco today and not just tomorrow. and ultimately this is about public transportation and it is about investing in the future of public transportation in the city and we are a transit first city and we need to better move the people who are trying to get around san francisco today, as well as those who will be coming to san francisco tomorrow. so this is really about building for the future, strengthening the transit system that we have today and i think that i am going to stop now because i have talked too long and bring up the people that you want to hear from starting with the leader in san francisco, a man who not only understands transportation and jobs, and i think that you have heard of him talk about jobs but understands the importance of infrastructure and investing in the economy and sa

that the economy looks a lot better; there's a lot of other companies that want to move here. unemployment rate has dropped to 5.4%, we are on a good roll in terms of employing more people. resources are up. we are not completely over the deficit that we're facing with the next two years so we have to do some decision-making. the other thing that the board of supervisors is doing with as is, the reason why we hold these meetings out here is because we want to do as much preventing of arguing among ourselves about what the priorities are in the city. we do still a little bit of that. it is nice to have the import of the public to guide us so that we have less arguments and more about building consensus of what's important in the city. the other thing that we are doing together is already evidenced, is that we're making sure that job creation reaches everybody in the city so this summer we are going to create together with the departments in the private sector, 6000 paying jobs for our youth. about thatthis is how we invest in our kids and our families, making sure that our city is safe, the ec
be a better place for everyone to live, work, visit, and do business. today, san francisco's economy is recovering. our unemployment rate has dropped from 9.6 percent when i first came into office in 2011, to an astonishing 5.4 percent today. [ applause ] we put san franciscans back to work and gave them back the dignity of a paycheck so that they could support their families. but it is still not good enough. and i will remain focused on making sure that no one is left behind. that is why we created programs like tech sf to insure that our long term unploid and youth have access to education, training, and job placement assistance. we have already trained and packed scores of people in technology jobs and the first graduation is this june. last summer, i proudly joined mayor pelosi to take up president obama's challenge of taking up summer jobs for activities for at risk youth and we surpassed our own goal, we got 5,201 summer jobs for kids last summer. the summer jobs plus program and now thanks to another great partnership with the united way this summer. we are working even harder
will further drive up the cost to both the economy and to civil society. we are demanding to maintain an effective status quo which is simply not an option. the current rate of coalition costs an average of 23 million dollars a year not including legal and administrative costs. apart from the terrible human toll -- the actual rental value of the land use for polk's on street parking suppression three -- the year. the city collects -- for parking on polk so we are subsidizing almost 1,000,000 dollars a year to the very few who get there by car. it has the potential to become the prime destination for san franciscans and visitors alike. it's a wonderful opportunity that we won't have again for another 30 years. if we ignore the trend about future needs, will not be able to maintain a competitive edge and liability. finally a part of the local economy that is overlooked in the street fight are the many workers who are lifeblood of districts two and three and other parts of san francisco who are the lifeblood. they tend to our businesses, are homes and public institutions and our c

(applause) >> thank you, nate. and thank you all for coming. this has been a great day today. we are going to get -- go back into our meeting and continue our dialogue, but mayor lee and president chiu and i believe nate and milicent also will be here to answer a few questions if you would like to. so, thank you all for coming.
